The Department of Justice denied a request by America First Legal for expedited processing of a Freedom of Information Act request seeking information from the DOJ on its October memo that launched an effort to combat an "increase" in "threats of violence" against school officials.

"On one hand, the Department of Justice believes vast national security powers must be arrayed against parents who object to Critical Race Theory — triggering a massive national scandal," America First Legal President and former senior adviser to former President Donald Trump Stephen Miller told Fox News. 

"On the other hand, when confronted with AFL’s crucial oversight request, the Department now pretends this issue is not a matter of ‘widespread media interest.’ The only consistency here is that DOJ is grossly abusing its authority to promote CRT and punish American parents."

At issue is an Oct. 4 memo released by the DOJ that said the department would be combatting what it claimed were increased "threats of violence" against school officials and teachers across the country.
